I'm an experienced English tutor specializing in Business English. I hold a Master's Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). I was born and raised in the United States and speak with a neutral American accent.
I offer customized tutoring that includes:
-- learning workplace expressions and business/technical terminology
-- improving your conversational skills, both speaking and better understanding the conversations you hear
-- improving your business writing skills
-- reducing your accent when you speak English
I have first-hand experience in a global corporate environment, working for a large technology company with employees from around the world. In addition, I have worked overseas myself and know what it's like having to do business in a language that's not your native language.
I speak French, Spanish, and Italian and also have experience teaching speakers of those languages who are beginners in English. In addition, I have tutored children between the ages of 6 and 18.
My English classes are fun and stress-free, and, most importantly, focus on helping you achieve your goals in learning English!
Tutor both adults and children in English. Specialties include business English, conversational English, accent reduction, and English for beginners (for speakers of French, Spanish, or Italian).
